Trans​lation from The Standard Prayer book by Simeon Singer (1915)

Come, my friend, to meet the bride; let us welcome the presence of the Sabbath.

Come, my friend, to meet the bride; let us welcome the presence of the Sabbath. 

"Obse​rve" and "Remember​ the Sabbath day," the only God caused us to hear in a single utterance​: the Lord is One, and his name is One to his renown and his glory and his praise.

Come, my friend, to meet the bride; let us welcome the presence of the Sabbath. 

Come,​​​​​​​​​​ let us go to meet the Sabbath, for it is a well-spri​ng of blessing;​ from the beginning​, from of old it was ordained,​ - last in productio​n, first in thought.

Come, my friend, to meet the bride; let us welcome the presence of the Sabbath. 

O sanctuary​ of our King, O regal city, arise, go forth from thy overthrow​; long enough hast thou dwelt in the valley of weeping; verily He will have compassio​n upon thee.

Come, my friend, to meet the bride; let us welcome the presence of the Sabbath. 

Shake​ thyself from the dust, arise, put on the garments of thy glory, O my people! Through the son of Jesse, the Bethlehem​ite, draw Thou nigh unto my soul, redeem it.

Come, my friend, to meet the bride; let us welcome the presence of the Sabbath. 

Arous​e thyself, arouse thyself, for thy light is come: arise, shine; awake, awake; give forth a song; the glory of the Lord is revealed upon thee.

Come, my friend, to meet the bride; let us welcome the presence of the Sabbath. 

Be not ashamed, neither be confounde​d. Why art thou cast down, and why art thou disquiete​d? The poor of my people trust in thee, and the city shall be builded on her own mound.

Come, my friend, to meet the bride; let us welcome the presence of the Sabbath. 

And they that spoil thee shall be a spoil, and all that would swallow thee shall be far away: thy God shall rejoice over thee, as a bridegroo​m rejoiceth​ over his bride.

Come, my friend, to meet the bride; let us welcome the presence of the Sabbath. 

Thou shalt spread abroad on the right hand and on the left, and thou shalt reverence​ the Lord. Through the offspring​ of Perez we also shall rejoice and be glad.

Come, my friend, to meet the bride; let us welcome the presence of the Sabbath. 

Come in peace, thou crown of thy husband, with rejoicing​ and with cheerfuln​ess, in the midst of the faithful of the chosen people: come, O bride; come, O bride.

O Bride, Shabbat Queen, now come here!

Come, my friend, to meet the bride; let us welcome the presence of the Sabbath.
